How about the system expression:

On my machine I can run mozilla from houdini by running the system 
`system("/usr/bin/mozilla www.google.com")`

You can also use the hscript unix copmmand to run an external application.
unix("usr/bin/mozilla www.google.com")

I imagine this would work on windows too with the correct path.

Hope this helps,
